Halen: I ... I just want to UNDERSTAND, Gregor. I am not just your Seneshal but also your FRIEND. Please help me understand. I just want to SUPPORT you.

Master Peck: Halen ... I love you. But you have to TRUST me. Right now we cannot trust ANYONE from the council. Not while Lady Violet has them in her pocket.

Master Peck: <lays a hand on his desk> But we also have to play along with her in this whole thing. For now.
Halen: But ... WHY?
Master Peck: Because we have NO CHOICE.
